The School of Education at Virginia International University invites your proposals for the 2018 Conference on Language, Learning, and Culture, “Making Research Matter: Motivated Inquiry for Actionable Insights” to be held April 6-7, 2018 on VIU’s campus in Fairfax, Virginia. 

In focusing on “Making Research Matter,” CLLC 2018 seeks to stimulate conversations on how research and its uses in society might be transformed if more of us were to make a point of asking “for what, for whom, and by whom?”* at the outset of every research endeavor.

Our aim is to involve a diverse group of practitioners, researchers, policy-makers, community members, and other stakeholders in a multidirectional sharing of perspectives, values, priorities, and expertise. We especially welcome proposals involving projects in which the investigators considered the users and uses of their research from the very beginning and made decisions accordingly—from action-research projects conducted by individual teachers in their classrooms to larger-scale funded endeavors where collaborative teams had an eye toward wider public engagement and policy impacts, and everything in between.

Proposals for paper and poster presentations, practice-oriented sessions, workshops, colloquia, and panel discussions are invited in areas related to the conference theme. The organizers especially seek examples of projects in which the investigators considered the users and uses of their research from the very beginning and made decisions accordingly—that is, projects in which questions regarding the purposes, potential applications, agents, and/or beneficiaries of the research played a prominent role in their conceptualization, design, and analysis, as well as in the dissemination and use of the findings. These might range from action-research projects conducted by individual teachers in their classrooms to larger-scale funded endeavors where collaborative teams of investigators had an eye toward wider public engagement and policy impacts.

The abstract submission deadline is December 4, 2017.
